Hi all,

Trying to resurrect an HP 7100 that has set for a couple of years. Supposedly was never used. After replacing the ink cartridges, I got a bad printheadmessage for all 4 heads. I removed them one at a time and soaked in alcohol then gently cleaned the nozzle area with paper towel. Now I'm only getting the bad printhead message for the cyan and yellow.

Should I try soaking them for a longer period? I'm not sure how long I can leave them out before I create a problem with the new ink cartridges.

Any help would be appreciated.
